Yesterday and today, I spent most of my time in the sewing room preparing for future projects.
I cut for 4 QOV pillowcases (pattern here). This will be nice for when I have a few minutes that I can just pick up the pieces and sew! The pillowcases will be the travelling cases for my quilts when I ship them.
Did you hear?! Bonnie Hunter is arriving in Wisconsin this weekend! I am so very fortunate to be able to take two of her workshops and attend a lecture next week!
Workshop #1 will be 'My Blue Heaven'. I plan on using blues and creams like Bonnie's since I already had the blues cut for another project that got shifted to the back burner. That meant I was cutting cream strips. I'm not planning on making my quilt as big as Bonnie's so these strips should give me a good beginning! I am taking this workshop through The Oconomowoc Quilt Guild.
Workshop #2 will be 'Virginia Bound' from her book, Scraps and Shirttails. I plan on using my treasure bag of greens and reds for a Holiday quilt. I already have the reds cut from the same back burner project as above, so I have also been pressing greens. This workshop I am taking through The Piecing Friendship Guild. Again, this is just a start and I will add more fabric as needed.
